Nick Swisher was the difference tonight. With the game once again knotted at 4, Swisher cranked out a 2 run home run in the 1oth inning and Mariano Rivera was able to lock it down for the sweep of the Baltimore Orioles. Nail in coffin. Any idea how Buck Showalter feels right now? I'd say pretty ticked off.

CC Sabathia is like CC Sabathia always is at this time of year, slow going but working through it the best he can. He's just got to warm up, don't panic, just give him a few more outings and he'll work out of the funk...he does this every year. There is no need for concern. CC Monster went 6 innings, gave up 8 hits and 4 runs and struck out 8. Sabathia clearly did not get the win because Nick Swisher's 2 run home run came way after CC was out of the game. Boone Logan, Rafael Soriano and Mariano Rivera pitched in relief and Soriano ended up getting the Win. He also had 2 strikeouts tonight. Mariano, as the save, number 2 on the season.Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixiera both went 2-5 tonight. Granderson had a home run tonight and also had 3 RBIs.

Again, final score, Yankees 6 - Orioles 4. The Yankees have swept the Baltimore Orioles and Buck Showalter.

So game over, next game is big. It's the Yankees home opener at the stadium and I cannot wait! See you Friday the 13th against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 1:05pm there or be square.

The biggest part of Friday? Jorge Posada will throw out the first pitch. It's going to be huge...
